Thanks to everyone joining us in Ft Wayne at the Missional Learning Commons. It looks like we’ll be having a good turnout and I know I’m looking forward to seeing everybody – both new and old friends.
Again, this is a non-conference. Although there are four sessions on Saturday, the speakers will be short. We want to hear from each other. Come expecting to participate, tell us what you’re learning, ask questions, learn from other practicioners. We need coffee. We’re hoping to keep a steady brew of coffee going. So we’re asking people to come with some free trade coffee to share during the day. If you can afford it – and like to drink it – please bring some ground coffee to share – For all other munchies including lunch – we’re on our own.
Friday night – two professors from Northern Seminary ( me and Sam Hamstra) are leading a discussion on Soong Chan Rah’s book The Next Evangelicalism. We’re hoping to pull in other folk into a lively conversation. Here’s my take on Prof. Rah’s book here. If you’re coming Friday night, please come having read the book. We hope to have a serious engagement with the issues of race and diversity in missional church.
This non-conference is free. It is organic. It’s planned by seven people who met in a restaurant in Michigan City last summer. It has cost nothing to put on. It is meant to bring people together, encourage and enflame imagination for mission. For more information see the web page here, or the facebook page here.
Blessings and we’ll see you this weekend.
